Early in Melissa's pregnancy she began bleeding and was diagnosed with Placenta Pervia which is where the placenta lies low in the uterus. Due to an early diagnosis, this issue resolved on its own and by week 21 the ultrasound revealed everything was going great, but Melissa had elevated blood pressure. It was monitored and at 22 week she was put on medication for it. By 26 weeks, her blood pressure was still not controlled and she was diagnosed with HELLP Syndrome. She was airlifted to Winnie Palmer Hospital where more tests and labs were preformed. Results showed little amniotic fluid. They wanted to keep Isabella in utero one more day to get a dose of steroids for her lungs. At this point she weight just under a pound. Meanwhile they were also doing round the clock checks on mom to ensure liver or organ failure didn't occur. Isabella was given a 30% survival rate.
The next day via C-section she was born and would begin the fight of her life. She was able to breather on her own and was immediately rushed to the NICU. She would stay in the NICU for 100days! During this time she received 4 blood transfusions, 3 PIC lines, contracted MRSA at 2 weeks, a brain bleed, 4 rounds of steroids, multiple BRADY Episodes, labs, xrays, eye exams, MRIs and surgery to close the PDA in her heart.
Thanks to research and funding by the March of Dimes many of these procedures were performed from their studies to increase her quality of life. Today Isabella is 9 months old reaching milestone and happy as can be. She was such a sweet little girl to capture.
Mom teared up over the images since these were the first real photos of her sweet family. She never got maternity or newborn photos due to the unplanned events. It's such a honor and privelage to work with sweet families like the Jaeger family and support the March of Dimes.
